Cooked Mung Sprouts

There is no need to talk about benefits of Sprouts, we all know it pretty well. So, how often do you actually include it in your diet? If your answer is “Not as much as I would like to” , then we are on the same boat. (Just for record, I use sprouts on average 2-3 times a month. )

I figured out I need to experiment more with my sprouts. Most common destination for them is either a raw salad with finely chopped veggies and seasoning or a cooked variation that my mother use to make. I do use them in different and creative ways and most of them turn out pretty awesome. May be being a little more organized (like naming my experiments and/or actually noting down the recipes instead of going with spur of the moment) will help. I am determined to try implementing this thought through my blog.

Today I am sharing the simple, earthy, home recipe that my mother use to cook. Nothing fancy, just basic ingredients and calm mind.
